Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3353) Public Comment: ODFuses patented Zip features?

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3353?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=20683#action_20683 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3353:

Bart, I am aligned with Rob's perspective on this.

The Application Note is more of an official document from PKWare and it is also one that they have agreed to preserve as an archival reference, http://www.pkware.com/support/application-note-archives

I also see that they have added other versions of their appnotes to the repository now, and having a stable collection of later versions is also valuable, since some provide clarifications that apply to 6.2.0 (e.g., with assumptions about character-set encodings in flenames within File Directory blocks).

So, from the perspective of provenance, having an authentic PKWare source seems important.

Either way, I don't think we would be relieved from profiling Zip in terms that help determine what consumers shall accept and what producers should not produce.
